The Executive Committee welcomes those who wish to join us in order to help set the trajectory for the coming year.
The Saanich - Gulf Islands Federal Green Party EDA is proud to be one of the most engaged and active Electoral District Associations in Canada. We've worked hard to keep our community of volunteers engaged and contributing to the improvement of our Party.
The AGM is the most important meeting of our EDA community—it's when our members take part in shaping the future of our association, directly affecting our future and that of the Green Party of Canada.
Four candidates are standing for election this year. A short bio is linked to each of their names, below:
Elizabeth's leadership has inspired us to push ourselves to explore new possibilities of EDA activity.
For more than eight years, we have had the honour of standing by our amazing leader and supporting her to be one of the most impactful MPs Canada has ever seen.
This is a wonderful opportunity to connect with your local Green family. Eligible members will also have the privilege of helping to elect some new members to the Executive Committee.

Why we think you should come:
• A healthy democracy requires robust and diverse participation
With support surging across Canada, Greens are heading into uncharted territory. The state of our climate is likely going the be the ballot box issue in the upcoming election and it's likely that more Canadians than ever will chose to put their vote in the care of a Green candidate. In the years to come, growth in Green support will mean expanded opportunities for community and culture building, grassroots policy development and regional collaboration. Now is the time to start thinking ahead to the next chapter for federal Greens not just in SGI, but in our region and province.
Participatory Democracy is a critical part of building a healthier future—it's also one of the Six Global Green Principles, upon which this party was founded. We hope you'll come excited to participate and help set the direction for your local Green Electoral District Association for the year to come.
You don’t have to be a Green Party member to attend. Everyone is welcome.
